The Exploring Cretion Young Eplorers series is an absolute must-have curriculum for elementary aged children. We started in Kindegarten with this series. The information is basic enough for the littlest ones to grasp and enjoy, while specific enough for the older kids to gain more knowledge. A+++
We just started this textbook last week. Last year we went through the Astronomy book and was very pleased with it. So far we love this one as well! As a homeschool mom, Jeanne makes it easy to just open up the book and teach. I find myself learning so much along side my children. There are a lot of supplies you need for the projects. Rather that collect them this year, we ordered a kit with most of the supplies in it. What a time saver! We will continue to use the Exploring Creation series all through elementary school.
i love this book/curriculum. i am using it to teach my 2nd and 5th grader together. it is very easy to use and allows you to be flexible with lesson planning. we could not be happier. we have purchased 4 out of the six in the series so far. we also purchased the journals to go with the book and they are wonderful too. they are worth the money.
My daughter was 7 when we used Apologia Exploring Creation with Botany and she absolutely loved it. She always looked forward to the experiments and most of them she completed herself with only my supervision. She took it to church one day and some of the high school students said they were just learning some of the topics that are covered in this textbook for the first time.
